Regularly dividing by pairs from bottom to top; as, a dichotomous stem.
a. (Gr. dichotous, a cutting in two) having or consisting of a pair or pairs; paired.
type of branching in which each branch is equal in size and length. Seen today in only about 2% of tracheophytes. It is only found in small plants (eg. ), because this form of branching cannot support much weight. (opposite: monopodial branching)
forking into two equal branches resulting from division of the growing point.
Dichotomous branching is where the stem repeatedly forks. It forks into to branches, and then each of those two branches fork, etc. This is quite common in the lower tracheophyte plants such as Psilotum, Selaginella, and Lycopodium.
branching by equal pairs.
divided or dividing into two sharply distinguished parts or classifications
branching into two equal structures (stems, veins etc.) leading to a "Y"
Dividing into two equal branches.
(adj.) Dividing repeatedly and regularly in pairs.
forking or branching regularly by pairs.
forking into two directions of essentially equal branches.
Forking regularly in pairs.
Branching into two equal parts, as in the stems of Psilotum.
divided into two approximately equal branches resulting from the division of a growing point.
equal bifurcation or forking, more common in ferns and gymnosperms
Forked in pairs.
Divided into two equal sized branches, usually applied to double headed plants.
forked branches or stems divided into equal halves.
A simple type of branching in plants where the apical meristem splits at various intervals.
Branching by forking into two equal branches, as if splitting into half. Parent Term: Branching_pattern Difficulty Level
divided almost equally into two parts &endash; often applied to a branching pattern.
Branching of hyphae into two equal branches that are each equal in diameter to the hypha from which they originated.
Forking regularly into two nearly equal branches or segments. Dicotyledonous. With two cotyledons.
With branches forking into two more or less equal parts.
With equally forked branches or stems.
equally forking into two (used for gills)
